emmerich weissenberger

As a sculptor, painter, illustrator, and performance artist, Emmerich Weissenberger always centers his work on the human being: his artistic works focus on the human form and his performances on human behaviour. His main objective is to uplift the human, to demonstrate his mental abilities and his potential for salvation.

Art can change the world. One of its core values is to bring out the best in people. This includes the development of a sustainable lifesyle for humanity, creating a dignified life for all.

Since 2004, Emmerich Weissenberger is the director of the ROSASTURM art laboratory for sustainable development and during this time, he has set in motion a variety of highly respected actions.

 “I believe that Art always leads the way. If a social or economic paradigm shift becomes apparent, artists, above everyone else, are the first to react. Art is like a seismograph and can also act as a trendsetter.

For all intents and purposes, Art is the spearhead of any new development. Sustainability concerns us all. For me, it is about artistic intervention, which makes this topic tangible and understandable.“


“The essence of the House of Philanthropy” – an Artwork in  5 parts / 2017 / mixed media on oiled paper, gold- and silverleaf, steel frame, LED-lighting / 230 x 1200

Emmerich Weissenberger worked with the people of the foundations and institutions of the House of Philanthropy in Vienna – with Zero Project, an initiative of the Essl Foundation, with the People Share Foundation, Ashoka and Blühendes Österreich – in several workshops, in order to essentially perceive each one of them, to get to know their common being, and to be able to display the experienced in a peace of Art. The entire 12 meter frieze is worked out on the original workshop sheets, using red chalk, graphite, oil chalk, gold- and silverleaf and linen oil.
